Proclus' philosophy-like much of Neoplatonism-is widely thought to be focused almost exclusively on metaphysics. His best-known works seem to be principally concerned with mapping the metaphysical (i.e. theological) geography of the orders of gods. The right moral to draw, however, is not that Proclus was not interested in ethics or made no contnbution to the field. It is rather that we, from our modern standpoint, don't see the ethical purpose of metaphysics.
